Thanks to a new partnership with Hasbro, Roblox Monopoly and NERF blasters will soon hit the market.
Hasbro announced today a new official partnership with Roblox to introduce a Monopoly board game as well as a range of Roblox-inspired NERF blasters representing some of the most popular experiences on the platform.
Monopoly: Roblox 2022 Edition will let fans collect and trade popular Roblox. Each game will also include a code to redeem for an exclusive virtual prize.
Roblox values the incredible contributions of its community of creators, and our partnership with NERF is an ideal way to bring their inspiring creations on the platform to life for millions of Roblox and NERF/MONOPOLY fans to enjoy in the metaverse as well as in real life,” said Craig Donato, Chief Business Officer at Roblox.
The game is available now for pre-order on Hasbro Pulse and at Big Bad Toy Store. It is $19.99 USD.

The new NERF blasters will represent some of the most iconic and most played games on the platform—Adopt Me!, Arsenal, Jailbreak, Mad City, Murder Mystery 2 and Phantom Forces. The new blasters will arrive in the U.S. this fall and then expand to other markets.
Like in the Monopoly game, each of the NERF blasters will include a code. The code will unlock a virtual blaster for fans to equip on their avatar in the game itself!
We are thrilled to bring NERF Nation and the Roblox community together for the first time with an incredible line of blasters we know they will be clamoring to get their hands on,” said Adam Kleinman, Vice President, NERF Global Marketing. “Our design teams have done a phenomenal job capturing the creativity and essence of Roblox creators and their most immersive, innovative Roblox games in NERF blaster form and we can’t wait to deliver these new items to Roblox fans around the world!”
Later this year, NERF will also be launching its own experience on the platform.
The 14-year-old MMO gaming platform was the most profitable US Mobile Game in 2020. Recently, the game made news when one of its players posed as a journalist, fooling the White House.
